Louis Cartier designed the Cartier Santos as a piece of machine which his dear friend Alberto Santos could take during his manned flights. Considering the need of a wrist watch which was easily accessible during the flight time, this watch was of perfect help. Over the years Santos has kept the legacy alive and has designed variant of the original Santos with success. The design is a part of history and speaks volumes of the brands rich legacy.
Associated with the legacy of the first manned flight watch that was ever created, this Cartier Santos automatic timekeeper is a part of history. The clean and sharp dial gives the watch a very modern contemporary look keeping the tradition black leather strap look intact. It goes perfectly with any cocktail party outfit or for your daily wear. The dial is a 33mm stainless steel case with a silver dial colour. The blue sword shaped hour’s hand points at roman numerals. The bracelet is polished with silver and is made of stainless steel with screwed down links.
It’s water resistant up to 30m and has push button fold over clasp. The watch is powered with high precision self winding mechanical movement. The purity and elegance of the design is what stands out in this timepiece.
Who knew a simple request by renowned aviator and friend, Alberto Santos Dumont, would bring Louis Cartier to design one of the first ever men’s wrist watches. When Alberto Dumont expressed what a bother it was to glance at a pocket watch while flying, Cartier took it upon him to come up with a solution, and designed a wristwatch unlike any other of its time. From then on, Alberto Santos Dumont wore his watch every time he took flight. He was renowned throughout Europe, and thus his Cartier watch became as famous as him. People began to get more and more curious about what he was wearing on his hand, and Cartier had the answer. This gave birth to the “Santos”, which fast became extremely popular with men all over the globe. Louis Cartier then went on to collaborate with movement maker Edmond Jaeger to mass-produce the Santos, which had the voyager’s name and went on sale officially in 1911, as the Santos de Cartier.
In 1904, Louis Cartier designed the first ever men’s wrist watch with a square bezel, leather strap and a small buckle. At first, Cartier had only used precious metals and leather as the straps for the watches, but in 1978, he delivered a relatively lower-priced steel/gold watch, preceded by an all-steel watch. The plate bezel affixed with tiny screws became a lasting feature of the Santos de Cartier range of watches.The Cartier Santos watches are also water-resistant up to thirty metres.
The Santos de Cartier watch is crafted in steel or gold, also featuring a graceful coupling of the two metals, with or without the embellishment of precious stones. Coming in a metal or leather skin strap, the timepiece rests easy and securely on your wrist. The case has a minimalist aesthetic integrated with rectangular rounded corners, evocative of its proud history, which called for a lithe and functional device. Most watches in this range have clearly readable white dials that have bold black Roman numerals and luminescent black oxidized-steel sword-shaped hands for enhanced visibility in low light conditions. Select models such as a few from the Santos Dumont line feature a stunning hawk motif- vivid in its imagery, rich in its use of precious metals and stones yet subtle enough to conform to the foremost ethos of the collection- practicality.
